“I wish I could take credit for this one, but it's a winning recipe from the HEB Central Market recipe contest for hatch green chilies. Now it may be a little difficult to describe this dish and by looking at it, it may be a little difficult to imagine how it all comes together, but trust me: This is incredibly delicious.”
